Scorodite and Pharmacosiderite

ID: CC702
A great example of a combination specimen from Hemerdon Ball Mine, with an exposed shallow cavity featuring sky blue lustrous Scorodite crystals and smaller cubes of green Pharmacosiderite crystals. The Scorodites are well formed and measure up to 2mm in length, forming several radiating clusters. Pharmacosiderite cubes measure to 1mm, and are scattered across the cavity, sometimes partially coated in the reddish brown Iron Oxide that lines the cavity. The cavity measures 2 x 1.2 cm, and there are several much smaller cavities filled with Scorodite sprays. One of the rare few specimens we found during our recent mining operations (2006) that has the combination of Scorodite with Pharmacosiderite.
